Some keyboard letters reversed

I have just installed Suse 9.1 professional.

I am running a dual-boot... with XP Professional.

In Linux, when I press the "y" I get a "z" and when I press the "z" I get a "y"... how do I fix this so the keyboard is normal?

sounds like a German keyboard layout. You should be able to choose the right keyboard layout somewhere in Suse's configuration tools. If not in kde control center - region and accessibility, I think.

Failing that you can type:
xsetkbmap us
to change to a US layout
